A Change in February:
February 25: 9 and 11 a.m. – The
Twelve Steps as a Path for Everyone Who Wants a Way – Bob Billstrom
and Jo Ann Huffman
In this service, we will explore
the Twelve Steps as a helpful, flexible structure to guide us on our pilgrimage
through life. As they work to embody the principles of Unitarian Universalism,
many UUs have found solid help from the Twelve Steps.
While they may not work for everyone, millions have found them to be a highly
effective path, just one more spoke in the wheel of mystery leading to the hub.
March 4: 9 and 11 a.m. – The New
Poor People’s Campaign and a Moral Revival in the USA – The Rev. Bryan Jessup
and Richard Kossow
The New Poor People’s Campaign is a
national call for a moral revival in this country based on economic justice for
poor people and care for the planet. The campaign is uniting tens of thousands
of people across the country to challenge the evils of systemic racism,
poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality.
March 11: 9 and 11 a.m. – UU Family Practices – Therese FitzMaurice and Wendy Rowan
Whether you’re partnered
or flying solo, raising children or childless, all are born into a family. As
we age, we define what family means, change and shape our own identity within
our most intimate communities – the family we are born
into and the family we choose to create. How can our UU community foster and
support us to create and sustain loving families?
March 18: 9 and 11 a.m. – Giving to the Mission and the Message –
the Rev. Bryan Jessup
The theme for our canvass this year is
“The Sharing of the Green.” In this canvass sermon we will consider how any
congregation actually functions and supports itself – and why supporting a
congregation with our time, talent and treasure might be important in our
March 25: 9 and 11 a.m. – Dentistry
as Ministry – the Rev Tom Lewis
Is access to health care a right or a privilege? Health care
is a social justice issue. It’s a right, not a privilege. Social justice is at
the core of our UUA Principles. This morning Rev. Lewis will discuss
his personal journey and transformation from a general dentist in Arcata, to
his call to attend seminary and his ordination as a minister by this
congregation. Dentistry has become an integral part of his
ministry. Come and listen to his journey and the deep connection of his
call with HUUF.
Tom Lewis was ordained a UU Minister in 2004. After
graduating from seminary at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, he was called to serve the Sierra
Foothills UU Congregation as their parish minister. After leaving SFUU for
health reasons, Tom began to volunteer his dental skills in various free
clinics, including at homeless shelters and in Baja, Mexico, Nicaragua, the Philippines,
and locations in California.
